Help w/iDrive and iPhone 4

Hi all -

New member here, just picked up a 2011 335i with iDrive. I've searched, but I'm getting conflicting information from this site, other sites, and the dealer.

My car has the "USB/iPod" option, and a USB and 3.5mm jack in the armrest. I'd like to hook up my iPhone and play my music off that. According to my dealer, I just need to use the USB cable that my phone came with. When I do that, the iDrive system says "Unsupported Device", or something like that.

Looking on line, it looks like BMW has an adapter cable that is required...has USB and 3.5mm connectors on it.

Which is correct?

If I need the adapter, is it reasonable to expect that it would have been provided with the car?
